To get a very accurate introduction to the Scandinavian Inn & its innkeepers, go to their website for information, photos & a video. We found the Inn & the innkeepers, Peter & Vicki Torkelson, to be exactly as presented. Their video is highly recommended. We enjoyed reading about the Inn, especially the “For Men Only” entry. We stayed at the... More

My husband and I have been to Lanesboro several times, and have stayed at local B&B's. We were in town for a wedding, and stayed one night over the weekend. The hosts were lovely and flexible as we had to quickly drop our things off before heading to the wedding; they met us when we returned later in the evening.... More

We were treated so well, by owners Peter and Vicki. Delicious breakfasts, towels by the door when we came back wet. :) It is a beautiful home and we enjoyed conversations with them and the other guests, but also had our privacy. Relaxing vacation, as we enjoyed the theater and many restaurants as recommended by our wonderful hosts! Also loved... More

We found Scandinavian Inn via Trip Advisor. The Inn is everything as described on their webpage and more! The Inn was lovely and well kept. The bed was extremely comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding with all seasonal fresh foods. The host was extremely helpful in pointing out activities and restaurants in Lanesboro. This will be our B&B of choice... More

The Scandinavian Inn was the perfect place to meet up with old friends and unwind for my husband and me. We felt as if were going back in time as we drove down the winding road into the river valley which nestles the Inn. The Inn itself is exquisitely decorated with furniture and art of another era when life moved... More

My spouse and I were celebrating our anniversary, so upon the recommendation of friends, we checked into the Scandinavian Inn in beautiful Lanesboro, a little town in the heart of bluff country known for its bike trail, lively arts scene, and small town charm. What a good choice it was! The breakfast was far and away the best we've had... More

This B&B is featured in the book Minnesota Homegrown Cookbook along with a few of the owners' recipes. Their food is amazing and prepared and served with a fine touch. Vicki and Peter are very kind, interesting, and accommodating. My sister and I loved that they have one of the cutest most cuddly cats living on the property(not in the... More

Checked in yesterday at 3pm, did some shopping, and took a bike ride along the beautiful winding river. They had a garage to store our bicycles safely for the night. Around 6:30 we opened a bottle of wine and sat on their comfy leather sofa (we had the main floor to ourselves) while listening to the great CDs they had... More

This was our first time in 29 years of marriage to stay at a bed and breakfast and we are SO glad we found this one! Peter and Vicki Torkelson are wonderful hosts at this very well-kept house. Their greeting upon our arrival was friendly and the tour of the house was inspiring. The Torkelsons allowed us to keep our... More

Lanesboro, Minnesota was a wonderful town to visit. We loved the bike trails and the shops. But by far the beat part of our trip was our stay at the Scandinavian Inn. It was very clean, environmentally friendly, the hosts were very nice and the breakfasts were fantastic. I highly recommend this B&B and will plan on going again soon!
